My father has been very ill and in Kingston General hospital for the past few weeks.
Two of my uncles and aunts travelled from southwestern Ontario this week to visit him. Since the drive is over four hours each way and they wanted to visit more than once, they asked a staff member at the hospital to recommend accomodations.
They were told that the Comfort Inn on Princess St. was offering a special discount to patients` family members during the holidays (Dec. 24th to Jan.2). We have had `compassionate`rates at other hôtels before but usually that meant that you would only pay $105 per night rather than their regular rates.
The Comfort Inn offered them accomodations for FREE. Absolutely no cost during a time of year that most hôtels charge their `high season` rates. But more than a warm, clean bed to sleep in, the staff at the Comfort Inn offered them compassion, a warm cup of coffee when they arrived and kind words.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that I thank them for their kindness and generosity. I know it meant a lot to my Dad to see his brother and sister and their partners. And it meant a lot to all of us that the Comfort Inn made things a little easier this week.
Our sincere thanks to all.
